Bettina Elias Siegel ’87 has gone head-to-head with McDonald’s and emerged victorious. She’s written about school-lunch issues for the New York Times, and she’s rallied parents around the country to speak out on behalf of their children’s health. But in 2010, when she started the blog that started it all—The Lunch Tray—she would never have called herself an activist. “Back then I was much more shy and not so comfortable with my own voice and just would not want that role,” she says.
four decades ON, The Woodlands, that foresty enclave north of Houston, isn’t just any old master-planned community. It’s a master-planned community with a bullet, with one of the highest rates of home sales in the country. Why? Maybe it’s the walkable downtown, or the restaurants galore (not just chains, anymore), the shops, the recreation. Or maybe it’s just the trees.
In the midst of Harvey's wreckage, before the city of Houston was able to accurately assess the amount of damage the storms caused the city, two major pieces of immigration news broke. First, SB4, an "anti-sanctuary cities" bill passed by the Texas Legislature this year, was mostly suspended just before it was scheduled to be implemented September 1, while a lawsuit makes its way through court.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
